“Great for children.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Lovely place, surrounded by orchards and fields. Pool with shallow part for young children, small play area with slides and swings, close to the breakfast and dining area. Excellent food and very helpful staff. Franco even prepared an early breakfast on the day we had to leave.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

A nice place to start or end your holiday in Sicily (flying from Catania; about half an hour drive from the airport). A lovely spot. We started our roundtrip in Sicily in this agriturismo-like surroundings. We had a small house which consists of a bedroom and a bathroom. Our girls loved it! The swimming pool has two parts; one part for the kids, one part for the grown-ups. Next to the swimming pool is a playground. Our host Elvira just did about everything to make our stay enjoyable. She arranged breakfast, came up with freshly picked fruits, cooked our dinner with ingredients from the garden, and brought a warm good night milk to our house for our youngest. Our eldest daughter kept on asking when leaving this spot, whether we would return to the "Sicily house." What I didn't like so much is the surroundings of this location. Paterno is not really a must-see; and the garbage problem makes the surrounding landscape dirty. It is a pity that local government doesn't succeed in solving this problem; some parts of Sicily would be so much nicer without this dirt in the streets.

I am almost loathe to write a review, because I do not want this place to be flooded by people, but Franco deserves it. You could not meet a kinder, more genuine host. Everything was absolutely brilliant, the home cooked (and home grown) food, the wine picked up in town, the views, the pool, the atmosphere and to cap it all, Franco who would give impromptu cooking lessons, whisk us off to get ice creams, surprise us with gifts. Sicilian generosity unparallelled and in one of the most beautiful settings around. Fantastic rustic cottages built out lava, and so much more than we were hoping for. Fantastic.
